Little Darling Daisy

As I mentioned in my last post,I made this card with the new Sugar Nellie Little Darling Daisy stamp.The photo still isn't good as it's dark and wet here and had no real good light today.I'll try and get another on a brighter day(if we get any!)I'm not happy with the ribbons.They'd have been better if they weren't organza,and I didn't want to pull it all apart.The flowers I've tried to make look like a daisy chain.

Coloured with Promarkers.PP are K&Co Wild Saffron.Core'dinations card in brown,green and yellow.Organza ribbon in brown,green and yellow.Liquid pearls to daisies in her hair.Flowers from QVC with Papermania pearls in the centre.Sentiment is from Studio G.

Thanks for looking

It's Only Me

I just wanted to apologise for not being around for so long.We've had a pretty stressful time here for the past wee while and I'd really just wanted to have a break from crafting and blogging for a bit.I even packed all my craft stuff away as I just couldn't be bothered.Thanks to everyone who have left comments and also emailed me.I appreciate it so very much.Thanks also to everyone who gave me awards too,which is so kind considering I've not been around.
Just wish whoever pinched my blog hits would give them back!.......lol. It's gone down instead of up.I didn't realise it did that if you didn't post...hehe.

I decided to go to the Hobbycraft show at the SECC yesterday even though I've not really been in the mood.I thought it might perk me up a bit and help me get back into the swing of things.I'm so glad I did. I met the wonderful Kath.I always knew she was a fabulously talented and lovely lady,and to meet her in real life was worth the visit alone.She kindly treated me to lunch and we had a lovely natter.
I also had another lady approach me and ask me if I had a blog as she thought she recognised me (not sure if that's a good thing!.....lol),so I got to meet the lovely Alison too. We had both been headed for the Sugar Nellie stand and bought some of the lovely new stamps.I think I got 6 in all and it was lovely to meet the Sugar Nellie ladies in person. I also bought far too many lovely papers,especially MME which are just gorgeous and a few other bits and pieces.Some card,white gel pen,box for my Crop-A-Dile Big Bite and two new pokey tools as mine keep disappearing.I actually came home with money for a change.....gasp!

I'll hopefully get round and visit everyone over the next few days and catch up. I've made a card with the lovely Little Darling Daisy but it was too dark to take a picture,so i'll upload it tomorrow.She's such a cute little image and at least it got me back into making a card.

Thanks for reading
